Proposal Abstract

Science education has been challenged by the rapid growth of online instruction. Using lab kits as part of a hands-on approach to online science avoids the sacrifice of student engagement. We will explore ideas to adopt and adapt a hands-on, inquiry model for online science labs that achieve essential lab skills and learning outcomes. Participants will actively take part in hands- on lab investigations developed for online science courses. These investigations have been designed for the off-campus setting while maintaining the college-level rigor.
